China Clay Gala at Bodmin and Wenford

China Clay Gala at Bodmin and Wenford

Type: Participatory Event

You'll find two historic locomotives from the NationalRailway Museum, 30120 and 30587, in use.

These engines both worked in the region during the 1950s and 1960s, so will work passenger and goods trains.

We're also expecting to have Judy, the Port of Par shunter famed for her adaptation in the 'Thomas' stories, 4247, 4612, 6435 and a selection of diesel engines in use.

They'll be intensive departures between 9am and 5pm, with trains heading in all directions from our hub at Bodmin General.
